AutoEvolution - Interview: Matt Martelli Doesn't Need to Make the Mint 400 Great Again, He Already Has

If you've seen our recent profile on the history of the Mint 400, you'll know its rise to counterculture superstardom in the late 60s and subsequent gradual decline in the late 90s is a story that could've only been told in Las Vegas. The race's remarkable second act post-revival in 2008 is nothing short of a Cinderella story in its own right. At this year's Mint 400, I got to sit down with the man arguably most responsible for the race's return to prominence.

Primm, NV - Last weekend we had the occasion to experience a first – attending what’s labeled the Great American Off-Road Race”. That would be the Mint 400 desert off-road race, a race that transpires pretty much exactly as it sounds: four laps of a 100-mile course through the Mojave Desert outside of Primm, Nevada. It’s a race steeped in history; at one time, the Mint was considered part of a triple-crown of races along with Le Mans and the Daytona 500. modded tesla cybertruck on bfg tires catches the action in the mint 400 s vip tent 231105 7

Admittedly, the BF Goodrich-sponsored Tesla Cybertruck was displayed at the Mint 400's parade and festival down Freemont Street the day before. But with a spot dead center in the middle of BFG's VIP tent at this year's race, the kind of standing this truck has in the modern zeitgeist is personified through its placement among Mint spectators. This is, bar none, the most polarizing pickup, heck, possibly the most polarizing motor vehicle in the 130-year history of the horseless carriage. Some people love it like it's automotive divinity; others see it as Satan on funny wheels. mint400 2024 limited extended 034 ea
